The Howl & The Hum have shared their "fast-paced miserable disco" track, 'Human Contact'

The Howl & The Hum have shared a new track, ‘Human Contact’.

“Human Contact is a fast-paced miserable disco touching on mental health and what it means to be alone in a digital age,” explains frontman Sam Griffiths. “The lyric deals with the idea of alienation vs technology - when there’s so much communication going on around us at all times, can we ever feel a true connection?

“The music feels like a pulsing fever dream, descending and howling like hellish digital connections and currents. Inspired by Black Mirror, Godard’s Alphaville, 1984, LCD Soundsystem and our personal physical connection to devices, the song has an intense emotional quality paired with its satirical message, aching to feel ‘something to die for...something to feel alive.”

The song arrives ahead of their biggest ever UK headline run, which will see the band - who are currently working on their debut alum - play eight dates including a night at the Scala.

The tour visits:

SEPTEMBER
23 King Tuts, Glasgow
24 The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
25 The Bodega, Nottingham
27 The Deaf Institute, Manchester

29 Brudenell Social Club
